PLEASE, if anyone has any contact with Wm’s son Sidney, DO NOT divulge news of his dad’s passing to him. We’re working with counselors to prepare him for this later today. No text condolences, emails, etc. Thank you, Sid’s step-dad.

'Si, Senor' was in a car advert for sure. If there got the Levi's advert as well, then that's what turned them in multi-millionaires (including the one member that converted himself into a religious nut).
